Oct. 1 -- A special issue of the Journal of Supercomputing, Springer, will be devoted to Energy-efficient High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing.
Over the last decade we have witnessed computing service providers to continually upgrade their infrastructures to high-performance computing systems that can meet the increasing demands of powerful newer applications. In parallel, almost in concert, computing manufacturers have consolidated and moved from stand-alone servers to rack mounted blades. The above mentioned trends alone are increasing electricity usage in large-scale computing systems, such as datacenters, computational grids, and cloud computing. This increase in electricity utilization has reached to a point that many information technology managers are all up in arms to identify a holistic solution that can reduce electricity consumption (so that the total cost of operation is minimized) of their respective large-scale computing systems and simultaneously improve upon or maintain the current throughput of the system.
Topics of Interests:
The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of Energy-efficient High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing. Papers must be submitted electronically via the Editorial Manager (http://www.editorialmanager.com/supe/) by selecting the article type as Sp Iss: Energy-efficient Computing. The maximum length of a submission (including tables, figures, and references) should not exceed 30 double-spaced pages with one inch margins all around.
Submission Deadline: October 15, 2009
Revision Notification: December 15, 2009
Revision Deadline: January 30, 2010
Final Notification: February 15, 2010
Expected Publication: 2010

The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
